About this Cook
I learned to cook to see how nicer food was supposed to taste like about 10 years ago. I just like doing it. If I can't afford something, or don't know what something is, I'll find a recipe and cook it to taste it.
My favorite things to cook
New weird things, from scratch tasty things, and crowd pleasers
My favorite family cooking traditions
Orange sweet rolls at Christmas. Portuguese sweet bread for Easter.
My cooking triumphs
I made a custard once. Custards are tough to make. I made a great meal when I met my mother-in-law. I finally once made a pizza my husband was happy with.
My cooking tragedies
When I was 9, I used to make a killer tomato sauce, but burned the hell out of the pasta, and it always used to come out like a cake. Like we had to slice it. Never could boil things until after high school, really. Made a nice sauce though.

Seafood Quiche
Wow. This is good!!! All I did differently was swap the Swiss cheese with Parmesan, canned mushrooms instead of fresh, and added a few drops of hot pepper sauce with hotter ground pepper... and a 1/2 cup of frozen spinach (only cuz I didn't have any veggies today). The frozen of the spinach made it take 15 min longer to cook. ... Oh yeah and I totally didn't read that part about the nutmeg til after I put in to bake, or the salt (oops!). But, hey: WOW!

Cream of Onion and Potato Soup
Perfect consistency for cream of potato. I tweaked it to make a cream of potato and broccoli. If that was your plan, too, keep in mind creaming and adding broccoli makes it bland, but Worcestershire sauce , mustard powder, and a LOT of salt (4 tbsp. in a 6 serving recipe) relieves that. Great recipe, very easy! I'll use it again.
